FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

General information

Riga is the capital and largest city in Latvia, found on the mouth of the Daugava River in the Baltic Sea. It is the largest city of the Baltic states and has a population of over 600,000. Founded in 1201, the city was a former member of the Hanseatic league and home to many Germans. You can still see a heavy Germanic influence within the city. The city was part of the Swedish and Russian empires and then in 1918 the capital of the independent Latvian state. It remained the capital during the USSR and then the capital of the newly independent state. Nowadays, Riga is a modern capital city undergoing many restoration projects which have made it one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Its Old Town is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a favorite for many travelers.

Old town

House of Blackheads was first built in the 1300's as a house for the Brotherhood of Blackheads, a German association of unmarried merchant and ship owners. Originally founded as a military organization, it later became more of a social organization. The building was destroyed in the Second World War but has now been rebuilt to its former glory and is now a museum and concert hall.

St. Peter's Church was built in 1209, making it the oldest church in the city. It was destroyed in 1941 and reconstructed in 1973. The church has a large tower which one can take an elevator to the top and get a fantastic view of the city.

Built in 1211, the Riga Cathedral is considered to be the largest church in the Baltic region. Inside there is an impressive organ with over 6,000 pipes. The cathedral is found on the Dome Square, considered to be the heart of the city and has some lovely other buildings such as the Three Brothers, the oldest dwelling buildings in the city, the Latvian parliament and the Swedish Gate, the last gate of the old city walls.

Museums

Museum of the Occupation of Latvia 1941 – 1990 was founded in 1993 with the aim of educating the public on Latvia’s 51 years of occupation by the Soviets, the Nazis and then the Soviets again. Prior to its present state the building served as a museum to the Red Latvian Riflemen.

Built in the 16th century, the Riga Castle now houses two museums, the Latvian Museum of National History, containing a collection of over 1 million items from archaeological, numismatic, ethnographic and historic categories. The main exhibition concentrates on the history of Latvia from ancient times to the 20th century. The other museum is the Museum of Foreign Art.

Excursions

If you want to learn more about the medieval trading route, you can visit other Hanseatic cities like Hamburg, Bremen, Tallinn, in Estonia, and over in Russia St. Petersburg!
